FOXBORO — The rainy weather wasn’t the only ugly part of Patriots practice on Tuesday at Gillette Stadium.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday that Wednesday’s sitdown with Tom Brady and Judge Richard Berman is simply another “part of the process” in the Deflategate drama, and said he plans to “cooperate fully” with Berman.

Tom Brady was at Gillette Stadium Tuesday to get his work in in advance of his trip to New York for his meeting Wednesday with commissioner Roger Goodell, according to a source.

FOXBORO — The Patriots held their last full practice before Thursday’s preseason opener at Gillette Stadium against the Packers. Wednesday will be a walkthrough so this was their last full practice before the game.

FOXBORO — Bill Belichick was never one to let a little weather get in the way of his preparation.

Jets quarterback Geno Smith has a broken jaw after a fight with a teammate and will be sidelined for the next six to ten weeks, according to New York head coach Todd Bowles.

Mike Florio of NBC Sports and Pro Football Talk joined Merloni and Fauria on Tuesday to discuss his expectations for Tom Brady and Roger Goodell’s upcoming battle in court.

Sirius XM radio host Chris “Mad Dog” Russo joined Dennis & Callahan on Tuesday to debate Deflategate and when he expects Tom Brady to play his first regular-season game.

It would appear U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman would like Tom Brady and the NFLPA and Roger Goodell and the NFL to settle things before going to court.

If anyone thought the Patriots had an unfair advantage in the AFC championship game, it isn’t Colts coach Chuck Pagano.

Speaking with Sports Illustrated/MMQB’s Peter King on Sunday, Pagano didn’t hold back.
